The bridge over Steinavötn river has been opened to pedestrian traffic following damage by flooding. Ring Road One is still closed for car traffic between Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and Höfn. It is not possible to bypass the closure, except by driving all the way around Iceland.
If all goes according to schedule, a temporary bridge will be opened to vehicular traffic on Friday.
